With my toes wiggling under the same wool blanket that my mother made me for my birthday one year, I look at the photo of my painted toes from several summers ago. From present, to mid-life to childhood, I’m drawn back into my memories of my grandmother Mona. I began writing Mona’s Work in September 2007. I need to finish it. Today is a writing day.
I allow the blanket made in colours gathered from one of my gardens to drift me back to a place full of butterfly mornings…and wild flower afternoons.
I’m back where the hay is being cut in the field and I am making potato salad with my grandmother using new potatoes, radishes and green onions from her garden. I leave you here to enjoy this beautiful song by Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions off of “Bavarian Fruit Bread”, as I go off to my day of writing.
